Online Panel: Menopause – Workforce impact
Featuring: Dr Kelly Teagle, Dr I-Ferne Tan, Thea O'Connor and Lynette Wesley - hosted by Natalie Chapman

Women of menopause age are the fastest-growing workforce demographic – by 2030, 25% of the female population will be menopausal. Symptoms can result in women leaving the workforce and not seeking promotion. With a STEM skills crisis upon us, organisations cannot afford for their experienced women to be leaving the workforce early.

If you’re a woman experiencing menopause symptoms or you’re a manager responsible for women, then this is the online panel for you. Our panel of experts will discuss menopause symptoms and treatment, early onset and fertility, tips and tricks for handling menopause at work, and how to make your workplace menopause friendly.

Online Panel: Nominate and Apply – You need to be in it to win it!
Featuring: Prof Maria Kavallaris AM, Prof Madhu Bhaskaran FTSE, Sarah Chapman FRACI, Natalie Chapman RTTP GAICD, Dr Jiawen Li

The diversity of applicants across many awards and fellowship applications is woefully low.

Many women shy away from putting themselves forward even if they are actively encouraged to apply. Writing the application can be challenging as it requires you to ‘promote’ yourself and ‘sell’ your achievements and ask referees to back you with letters.
